So lemme get this straight — your idea of a "good productive conversation" is a bunch of trolls dogpiling the OP (who, granted, could have been more articulate in his position), and an ideologue telling someone they shouldn't use the word "female" in any circumstance. That was the state of the thread when I walked into it.

Then, when someone else (myself in this case) takes the time to present critical rebuttals, and explain theory to hopefully spur a deeper conversation on the topic, according to you that's "inserting" myself. Do you know how conversations work on the internet? I do not need a written invitation. If someone sees something and they want to comment on it, they can. In terms of theory, that's called discourse, and it's crucial to a positive and productive social movement.

Now you're flexing what little authority you have to halt all further conversation and silence discourse, rather than take a measured look at the conversation to see who offered substance and who was just trolling. Oh well, the trolls were trying to derail it themselves, so there wasn't any engaged discourse happening anyway.
